Manuka honey is gathered in New Zealand from the flowers of the manuka tree, Leptospermum scoparium,
which grows uncultivated in large areas throughout the country. Manuka
honey has long been perceived as having exceptional health properties.
The Molan Gold Standard™ was developed and named after the Dr Peter Molan, the scientist who
discovered the special antibacterial properties of Manuka Honey. He is known as one of the world’s leading honey
scientists. The Molan Gold Standard™ (MGS) is a grading system that has
been reviewed by the Ministry for Primary Industries of New Zealand to
ensure that it meets legislative requirements. It appraises the natural
marker methylglyoxal (MGO) found in Manuka Honey, and assures purity and
quality. There's more to be learned about MGS at: http://www.petermolan.com/honey-research
Generally people using manuka honey find it is great for maintaining good health and well-being.
